Plastic Challenge: Kristin, Week 22

Plastic Challenge: Kristin, Week 22

Dishsoap- I just polished off my giant refill bag. Any suggestions (other than not using it)?

Garbage bags- we’re starting to run low on our ancient stash of grocery store bags that we’ve been using for this purpose, but I don’t feel like we’re close enough to needing NO garbage bags… my understanding is that the biodegradable bags don’t actually biodegrade in the landfill- what’s a girl to do?

Plastic Challenge: Kristin, Week 20

Plastic Challenge: Kristin, Week 20

Of the humongous amount of strawberries I bought yesterday, a large portion were frozen in big Ziploc freezer bags I already had in the house. I know that freezing in canning jars IS okay, but for strawberries that I’ll grab a handful at a time for smoothies, I’m not sure this would be the best method. I also freeze a lot of stuff in tupperware-like containers, but I surely don’t own enough of them to have handled this volume of berries. Any thoughts?

Plastic Challenge: Kristin, Week 14

Plastic Challenge: Kristin, Week 14

I have yet to remember (in 14+ weeks) to ask for no straw when dining out. I have no idea why…. any tips?

Annoying amazon.ca packing pillows: I had full intentions of commenting on my order for no plastic packaging to be included, but totally forgot at the last minute. Does anyone know if they can substitute a paper product?
